Inside the 1 bedroom the place looked drab and old. For the price of $178 for 1 night not value. No managers in complex after 7.30 pm. Got locked out of room because the second key for room was on main key ring. Had to ring a after hours number so someone who looks after all resorts in the area... More

This is an apartment style hotel with all appliances, including a washer and dryer and would be perfect for families. Public areas are well maintained as are the apartments themselves. Rooms could use a bit of updating, but are comfortable, offer fantastic views of the ocean and the resort itself is 2 minutes from shopping and restaurants. Outside, there are... More

A veritable home from home in a fantastic location. All the amenities you could ask for in the units, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, foxtel movie channel and more. Combined with absolutely wonderful staff, super pools and superb location with wonderful views across the bay. A definite recommendation from me.

Recently stayed on the fifth floor - amazing views, lovely fresh, clean and comfortable room! Pool area is just gorgeous and the main street of Airlie beach is literally seconds away! I would have to say this is the nicest resort within such a short walking distance to everything! Recommend a walk down to Airlie Beach Hotel for a

A friend and I stayed in an apartment at Waters Edge for just shy of a week and it was an absolute gem. It is so close to the main street restaurants and cafes, the local Woolworths and a short stroll from the Port of Airlie (the marine terminal where you catch ferries out to the other islands). The apartment... More

The front reception staff where lovely, not open 24 hours normal business hours I think, well at least on the weekend, our room was a long way to walk to carry our luggage and... More

Enjoyed a week here in late October. Was our second stay at Waters Edge Resort. Love these apartments, the views are stunning and they are spacious and immaculately clean! Very comfortable beds and a cute heated outdoor spa tub for relaxing. Would highly recommend floors 4 and above for great views!! Walking distance to shops and beach is a huge... More
